The Center for Family Resources Celebrates 60 Years of Fighting Homelessness at its “Diamonds in the Garden” Gala

February 19, 2020

Dust off your dancing shoes and don your sparkles for “Diamonds in the Garden,” the Center for Family Resources’ signature, black-tie fundraiser, March 14 at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Celebrating its 60th year, 2020 marks the organization’s diamond jubilee anniversary.

Since 1960 the Center for Family Resources has served Cobb County by offering programs and services to move families who face poverty and homelessness to self-sufficiency through financial stabilization, housing and education. Proceeds from what has become Cobb County’s ultimate party with a purpose will support the organization’s operations and mission.

This year’s gala theme looks back at the non-profit’s beginnings and forward toward its vision for the next 60 years. Historically the annual gala hosts more than 500 patrons and raises more than $300,000.

This year, dance music will be performed live by Party Nation. Doors open for registration and cocktails at 6:15 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. As in past years, the gala will include silent and live auctions. Items to be bid on include everything from use of a luxury Braves Suite to artwork to adventures, near and far.

Genuine Parts Company is this year’s Platinum sponsor. S.A. White Oil Company is the gala’s Anniversary Partner sponsor, and Cobb Galleria Centre, Frye Law Group LLC, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company and Wellstar Health System are $10,000 sponsors. Gala sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, please contact Kim Reeves, development director at (770) 428-7202. Tickets to the event can be purchased online at thecfr.org/gala.

Since 1960, the Center for Family Resources has annually helped more than 10,000 low-income families with temporary financial and food assistance, housing, and employment and education services. By “empowering families to help themselves,” the staff at the Center for Family Resources is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by helping families acquire the resources they need to become independent and self-sufficient.
